Historical awareness support and its evaluation in collaborative software engineering

By David Nutter and Cornelia Boldyreff


The types of awareness relevant to collaborative soft-\ud ware engineering are identified and an additional type,\ud "historical awareness" is proposed. This new type of\ud awareness is the knowledge of how software artefacts re-\ud sulting from collaboration have evolved in the course of\ud their development.\ud \ud The types of awareness that different software engineer-\ud ing environment architectures can support are discussed. A\ud way to add awareness support to our existing OSCAR sys-\ud tem, a component of the GENESIS software engineering\ud platform, is proposed. Finally ways of instrumenting and\ud evaluating the awareness support offered by the modified\ud system are outlined
